Sarah and Dave aren’t sure in what direction they want to take their wedding—well, Sarah’s not sure; Dave just wants a venue with a “chill place” where he can enjoy cigars and scotch with the boys. Sarah, meanwhile, is so focused on making their big day as trendy as the wedding blogs she frequents, she’s having trouble narrowing down an actual theme. Hopefully, this restored Victorian building in the heart of downtown Toronto can check all (or at least most) of her boxes.
Established in 1889, the historic Great Hall perfectly captures that “blogger-chic” aesthetic Sarah loves and somehow manages to feel both ultra modern and classically romantic at the same time. Plus, its airy white interior offers a stunning blank canvas for Where to I Do? host Tommy Smythe to work his design magic and pull all those scattered wedding dreams together.
But will this indecisive couple actually be able to commit to this venue?

Is this dreamy Victorian venue ‘blogger-chic’ enough for this indecisive bride?
The Great Hall had the privilege of hosting Allison and Stefans ceremony and wedding. A simple, yet sophisticated, ceremony filled the Conversation Room with white chairs dressed by geoforms and a stunning arch front and centre. Allison had created the gorgeous arch as a DIY project using spray paint and copper paper straws while wiring all the elements prior to arriving to assemble the final arch day of.
The Main Hall’s set-up was a contrast to the ceremony with hues of purple and wooden chairs accentuated by copper pendants illuminated by tealight candles. The couple’s personality shone through their choice of table numbers, rather, famous figures from the good ol’days like Frank Sinatra. The newlyweds also proved to be a tight knit family using a sword, the family’s heirloom, to cut their cake.
The guests enjoyed a great night of live music, passed hors d’oeurves and dinner ending the night with a dancing and latenight poutine. Congratulations Allison and Stefan!
